with the low sun angle for the month of january, and of course we're in the dead of winter, it's going to take some time to get rid of the fog before we start to see the sunshine move through. i'm anticipating in the afternoon we should have a good deal of it, and help warm us up but to the west of the continental divide a little bit of snow. the moisture in place t awesome terrain, perfect ingredients for a few showers, everything winding down tomorrow evening. dry but cold night ahead, in greeley. 10 in yuma. down to the single digits if mountains. areas of fog with the dense fog advisory expiring at 10:00 o'clock tomorrow, and while we think our temperatures are chilly, daytime highs in minneapolis, 2 degrees. they have the big wild card game, and it's going to be biting. 35, not too shabby around here. a lot of folks above the freezing mark.

hook for him? >> no, i saw a guy who had lost confidence, he's got it back, and he'll take it out on the guys he's playing. >> that's good because if the steelers come in, you'll need the confidence. it's going to be a shoot out. >> if brock can put up 28 in the first half, think of what a good peyton can do. >> you think we'll see a good nate. >> yes, i think -- peyton? >> where he is, i think it's going -- yes, i think it's going to be a tough day for the other team. that's it for us.
from colorado's sports leader, here's rod mackey. >> 34-27 was the score the last time the broncos played the steelers. a devastating defeat in pittsburgh in december as denver no-showed in the second half. well, sometimes in life you get a second chance, and this time the game will be in denver. the sixth seated steelers coming to town after upsetting cincinnati tonight. some say it's an upset, but pittsburgh was favorite. the catch of the year, it's even more unbelieverrable in slow motion. but then problems for -- unbelievable in slow motion, but then problems for pittsburgh. ben big carted off the field with an jew. cincinnati came -- a injury. cincinnati came back, all the way back. cincinnati on top 16-15.
jones the quarterback? no. interception, game over. or maybe not. bengals give it right back, jeremy hill coughs it up, and the steelers have life. are you kidding me? big ben says enough, i'm coming back in, injured shoulder and all, leads them down the field, aided by two stupid cincinnati call, and put them in position for this. 35-yard game-winning field goal. pittsburgh wins the craziest game ever, 18-16, but the steelers may be short handed sunday at mile-high. >> we had some injuries, obviously, antonio has a concussion, ben's got a shoulder, you know, he was able to go back in the game, i don't know how far he was able to throw the ball, that's why the last drive looked the way it looked in terms of wasn't very fluid. didn't throw much down the field, but he was good enough.
we have to work quick. we are going into another hostile environment. we respect it. >> the other afc game is new england and kansas city, that's red hot kansas city. houston lost home field on the first play of the game. advantage gone thanks to davis. opening kick off. 106 yards, and we thought the superbowl snap over peyton's head was a bad way to start a game. houston kept shooting themselves in the foot. they had five turn overs all by the welcome back. kansas city wins their 11th straight this year. the final, 30-0. another day, and another honor for the broncos. yesterday von miller was named all pro, today danny trevathan and brandon marshall earned the encouragement award. both had off season surgery,
to start and they were the team's top two tacklers. >> we both went through, you know, tremendous injury, and we both came back, worked hard, we are rehabbed hard, and dedicated ourselves to getting back, and being ready for the team. to have somebody go with me and be strong through it is a characteristic not really found in a lot of people, and it feels going to get the award. >> >. it's a very prestigious award, so to have two players get it that's something special. >> and another shout out to adam gate, a former offensive coordinator for the broncos, he's now a coach at the dolphins. at 37 years old he's the youngest nfl coach. are we happy about pittsburgh? >> i think so. kansas city is red hot.
that started with beating the broncos, and the steelers they're coming in short handed. brown is the guy that beat the broncos last time with harris, he took a real cheap shot, he has a concussion, so we don't know what's going to happen, so pittsburgh is not at full strength next week. >> go broncos. >> that game though, wow. >> great game. >> thanks rod.
